Hi,

I've just created all key store and certificates for ssl with tomcat. When i try to run my client i'm getting the following error

Oct 4, 2004 5:02:19 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start
SEVERE: Catalina.start:
LifecycleException:  Protocol handler start failed: java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect

Oct 4, 2004 5:02:19 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start
INFO: Server startup in 12041 ms

I've double checked my code and the password is correct so if anyone has any ideas what else could be the problem and how to fix it  please let me know.

Thanks,
Suzy

(1) You can use keytool to list the keys in the keystore. I can't remember whether it lists the password as one of  the attributes. I would try to independently verify the password.

(2) Unfortunately, it may take less time to blow away the keystore and recreate it and the keys than to puzzle over the error. I would recommend that you use a batch file or Java to create the keys rather than doing it interactively; that way you have a means of looking back at exactly what was entered.

Good luck,

Dorothy
